The GSMA Sustainability Assessment 2019 Results
The GSMA has developed a Sustainability Assessment Framework to better understand the landscape of operator efforts in social and environmental sustainability. The Framework, designed in collaboration with Yale University, is intended to examine sustainability efforts across the mobile industry in a comparable and leading-edge way.
The Framework is constructed to assess not only performance of the MNO operations themselves, but also the interaction of the company with society and the leadership position adopted on these global challenges and opportunities.
This paper presents the Framework structure and the results from the second assessment of the 25 companies represented on the GSMA Board. We used the results to highlight learning opportunities and to propose a series of “next steps” to extract additional value from the Framework going forward.
